William Blake Comic Book: A Memorable Fancy Comic pg 8

Howdy, fellows! I hope you're doing swell on this Friday!
Well, this week Joe Biden didn't soil himself in public as I feared he might have. He told a story about how as a lifeguard in 1962 he forced a pomade-wearing skeez to split the pool (good on Uncle Joe) but then later the skeez confronted him in the parking lot with a straight razor. However, Uncle Joe had equipped himself with a length of chain, and the skeez backed off after Uncle Joe threatened to wrap the chain around his head.

Some people found this story unbelievable, but the son of the pomade-wearing man came forward and said it was true, his father did have the gang name of "Corn Pop" and he had once threatened Uncle Joe with a straight razor.

Let it be known that I don't want Uncle Joe as a President, the guy seems like a prize jerkoff, and he suspiciously touches a lot of young girls in public which seems real weird. But credit where credit is due, I suppose. Uncle Joe had been telling the story since 2008 with some embellishments.

Okay enough of that. This week's page I used a bunch of zipatones to create the background. Gotta say, they can really help out inks. But there's lots to learn about using them well.

Also in this week's page William Blake mentions Leviathan, who is the sea counterpart of the animal Behemoth.

Okay that's it for tonight, I gotta cut this short and go make dinner! Ciao for Now, cowboys! See you all next week!

Comic transcript

You're reading a page from a comic book entitled William Blake, Man of Action!! It's based on William Blake's poem "A Memorable Fancy" from his larger work "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell". I'll be posting a page a week, and the first page of A Memorable Fancy is here. Alternately , you can check out the archive to jump to different pages. Please leave a comment if you like it, or don't!

And after seeing the gigantic globes with fire, they come closer, and William Blake says "And now we saw, it was the head of Leviathan, Advancing toward us with all the fury of a spiritual existence."
